Arcade-style shooters are no stranger to odd playable characters and enemies. From mechanical fish to moe girls, the genre’s seen nearly everything. But what about a shapeshifting bat?
That’s the hook of Gongbat. In this game, players control a bat who takes power from musical gongs. Once a gong is hit the bat changes forms completely. Of course, the game also includes frantic shooting action, 13 bosses, and online leaderboard to keep shooter fans playing.
Did I mention Gongbat is available for free? You can check out developer Ace Poison’s game via Gamejolt. The 12-track soundtrack is available at on a “pay what you want” basis if you’d like to send some cash their way.
